This problem is most times caused by an open circuit in the rotating contact under the steering wheel, this part is called the clock-spring contact, it supplies a connection to the airbag and steering wheel controls like the cruise, horn and radio controls. I would check the fuse as well to cover the bases, it is fuse #9 in the passenger compartment fuse box, it is a 7.5 AMP

SOURCE: cruise control won't work
Does the on light in the dash come on? If not, you may have a broken switch in the steering wheel which is a fairly cheap repair. Otherwise, the controls work through the Printed Circuit Board in your dash (your instrument cluster) and the problem could be as simple as a solder defect or faulty component. The problem is that no Ford Service Technician that I know will touch this and tell you that you need to replace it.
The instrument cluster is very easy to replace but may cost you a few more dollars than you want to spend. I would have someone with an electrical background check the cruise control switches in your steering wheel with a multimeter before going any further with this. Also check the wiring for resistance leading from the switch to the cluster.

Dave, I am sorry I can't help you, but it sounds like you know what your doing, all I can do is offer you the troubleshoot guide, for a ford car cruise control, which should be the same. You can purchase for 20.00 on alldatadiy.com and it will give you all service info on your specific vehicle for a year. I think it is well worth the money, and generally when I need to repair any vehicle with problems it has been a life saver. I am pretty sure the electronics for this are contained in the cruise module it's self. Alldata will have a trouble shooting guide that will walk you through the repair. It could be the actual button on the steering wheel, it could be the module. You can buy these pretty cheap if you go to car-parts.com and put in what you need. Of course these are used but most yards give a warranty on them.

I had this same Problem and it was a simple vaccuum hose leak connected to the cruise control module. Try replacing this small hose.
